  1. Oh WAM, please help. I’ve just arrived in the fortunate position to upgrade from B&W CM1’s for a bookshelf + sub configuration, driven by a peachtree audio nova 65se (Class D USA integrated dac amp). Budget is £2k for speakers, and I am leaning to Dynaudio but wonder if I am out over my skis. The trigger for all this is I have just started using an external DAC, the Chord Hugo2, and it has massively exposed the gap in warmth and clarity missing in the CM1s with this amp vs my headphones on the Chord which are sublime. In a local HiFi specialist I demo’d some B&W 705S2s, which to me, when connected to the Naim amp at the shop, had a sort of exciting initial experience but then an unrelenting precision. Too in my face. Got connected to a Rotel and then heard Neat Ministras with their ribbon tweeter and that was clear, but brought them into my setup for a few days but, they are too bright. Much brighter than the CM1s for my amp to the point I was missing even the bass and baritone on balanced choral/vocal music (not that low). Have always heard great things about Dynaudio but wonder, will I really be able to push the Evoke 10s or 20s; are the Emit M20s enough of an upgrade over the CM1? I am somewhat limited in the 12x12ish front room where the speakers will be on bookshelves, fairly close to the wall at rear with a max speaker height of 38cm/ 15in. Anyone had Dynaudio experience or been at a crossroads? Can probably push the wife to 2k and then maybe upgrade the amp later, but it needs to have a digital in or two as it also is used for the Telly alongside my vinyl and the Chord DAC.

    Hi, Just signed up, feeling my way around and trying to set things up. I have ideas and views that do not, in general, coincide with mainstream hifi 'perceived wisdom'. My musical tastes (and habits) are somewhat weird too. Thought The Wam might be an interesting place, been lurking for a while.
